Reframe is a registered trademark and initiative by Ace and Tate Holding B.V. and any of its affiliates (together “Ace & Tate” or “we”). With Reframe, Ace & Tate aims to build a circular system and to take first steps in creating a future with minimal waste. Reframe consists of two parts:
returning used Ace & Tate eyewear to Ace & Tate by customers (see section 2 below); and
purchasing used or refurbished Ace & Tate eyewear (“Reframe Eyewear”) by customers (see section 3 below).
Customers are hereinafter referred to as a “customer” or “you”.
In addition to the terms of Reframe, the Terms and Conditions Ace & Tate E-Com B.V. (August 2018) apply.
In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Terms and Conditions Ace & Tate E-Com B.V. (August 2018), these Terms shall prevail.
Ace & Tate reserves the right at all times, without giving any reason, to stop or amend the Terms or to change the Terms.
2. A) Returning used Ace & Tate eyewear to Ace & Tate by customers
When a customer returns used Ace & Tate eyewear to Ace & Tate, the following is applicable.
Customers can hand in Qualifying Eyewear (as defined below) at Ace & Tate Stores. In exchange for each piece of Qualifying Eyewear, the customer receives a Gift Code (as defined below).
Qualifying Eyewear is an original Ace & Tate frame or clip-on that is purchased and fit enough to reuse or refurbish, which is to be determined at the sole discretion of Ace & Tate. Ace & Tate can request the customer to show a proof of purchase (e.g. an invoice or order confirmation email) and Ace & Tate can decide that a frame is not Qualifying Eyewear. For example: a frame that is in very poor condition or heavily damaged is not Qualifying Eyewear.
The Gift Code is a unique code worth €10 (ten euros) (or in the currencies that Ace & Tate is currently trading in: ₤10 / SEK 100 / DKK 100) and can be used once by the customer on their next purchase in any Ace & Tate store or online at aceandtate.com. The Gift Code can only be used for Ace & Tate products. The Gift Code cannot be combined with other coupons, promotion codes and discounts. The expiration date of the Gift Code is communicated together with the unique code. When using the Gift Code, there is a €20 (twenty euros) (or an equivalent amount in the currencies that Ace & Tate is currently trading in) minimum order value required. The Gift Code is non-refundable and cannot be used to purchase another Ace & Tate gift card.
Once a customer hands in Qualifying Eyewear at Ace & Tate Store and the customer has received a Gift Code in exchange for this Qualifying Eyewear, the customer’s Qualifying Eyewear cannot be returned to them.
